Empowering the Service Economy with SLA-aware Infrastructures

Project description


Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering
SLA@SOI is researching the systematic management of service-oriented infrastructures on the basis of formally specified service level agreements (SLAs).
 

SLA@SOI is researching the systematic management of service-oriented economy likely to replace the whole product-oriented economy in short time. These service-oriented infrastructures are based on formally specified service level agreements (SLAs). SLA is the formalisation of a negotiated agreement between two parties. It is a written contract between customers and providers that fixes the parties' expectations concerning the quality of the services defined by the availability, performance or other attributes of them.

 

SLA@SOI: a major evolution Milestone

 

The project is a major milestone for further evolution of a service-oriented economy and the conveyance of IT-supported service provisioning which is currently of major relevance in all industries and domains. IT-based services can be flexibly traded as economic goods, i.e. under well-defined and dependable conditions and with clearly associated costs. This will allow for dynamic value networks that can be realised flexibly and thus, drive innovation and competitiveness.

SLA@SOI will provide three major benefits as regards the provisioning of services:

* Predictability and dependability

* Transparent SLA management

* In-depth guidance for industrial stakeholders

* Open reference case which allows for stakeholders to return, revalidate and modify SLA experiments.

* Automation

 

Business Benefits:

 

All the main stakeholders in a service-oriented economy will benefit from the project results:

* Software providers

* Service providers

* Service aggregators

* Service customers

 

Main innovative features of the project:

 

* An automated e-contracting framework

* Systematic grounding of SLAs from the business level down to the infrastructure

* Exploitation of virtualisation technologies at infrastructure level for SLA enforcement

* Advanced engineering methodologies for creation of predictable and manageable services.
